Question about Nikon Coolpix 8700 Digital Camera
Recently my Coolpix 8700 images have fine white horizontal lines. Lines appear when more light is present. When Use Flash lines disapear.
If I use camera for recording films all is OK.
This is not a solution , but only a work around. If you do at least 1/3 zoom on your lens before clicking a photo, these lines will not appear. But this not not a convenient way I agree.
Also this surely means that the CCD is not the problem otherwise it would have never worked ( electronic parts cant simply dont start to work when you zoom ringht ? ). Surely Nikon is fixing the issue, but cheating the customers by charging for a part is not defective in the first place

I had the same problem few months back!
the lines appeared when i took pics in low light conditions, then after a while i could see em in the all the pics (even when i clicked photos with flash or during daylight). I got it checked at a Nikno Service Center. Apparently the CCD chip was damaged and had to be replaced, they got it from another model cause Nikon doesn't manufacture 8700 anymore.
Cost me around 220 USD
hope it helps :-)
